In February, the REACH Foundation is pleased to introduce three unique virtual programs to complement and support your students' experiential learning activities this semester.
1. From the Inside - Speaker Series (Part 2) is scheduled on Wednesday, February 24th at 7 pm. Four extraordinary PYLUSD Alumni will return to share ideas, stories, and insights to help high school (HS) & middle school (MS) students prepare for college and future work experiences. Remember to save the date on your calendars!
2. In collaboration with Microsoft, the REACH Academic team will launch three (3), FREE online classes, for the STEM-UP Club. Age-appropriate classes will be offered to members of the club on various topics. See the classes below and sign-up for the district-wide club if you are interested!
Registration is now Open at the STEM-UP Club. Microsoft Free Online Classes will begin in March.
3. Discover nature, appreciate the outdoors, and learn about Environmental Literacy at home or in your neighborhood! The second Annual Experience Your Environment 2.0 will return this year in a 3-part virtual format with two premier community partners: Inside the Outdoors and Crystal Cove Conservancy. The adventure begins March 13th with students and families using a free app to identify organisms (plants and animals) in your community. This will be an action-packed event with amazing prizes! More details will be provided soon.
Over the past eight years, one of the REACH Foundation's favorite traditions is bringing the Placentia-Yorba Linda community together for the ShamRock 'n Run 5K & 2K Fun Run. Thousands of families participated in this festive, fun community event while raising funds to support enrichment programs and events for our students. We had a successful virtual run in October 2020; however, due to the Orange Country Health Department's guidelines, the 2021 ShamRock 'n Run will be postponed until further notice. We may be back in the fall of 2021 or spring of 2022. We will keep you posted!
Thank you for your support!
